“Great hotel”
Reviewed 17 December 2013 via mobile

This is a nice hotel that is close to the University of Florida. Lots of restaurant choices close by as well as other shopping. Very friendly, helpful staff. Our room was clean and very spacious. It was the typical breakfast but I can't complain when it is included in the cost of the room. And the price we paid for the night was great. We will definatley stay here again if we are ever in the area.

Stayed December 2013, travelled as a couple

This place was clean, quiet and comfortable and just off the interstate. It's right near the University. They gave us a very good rate that was advertised on trip advisor. Good, hot breakfast the next morning with eggs, biscuits, gravy, etc. Staff was friendly and helpful.

We were on the way home from Apopka, Fl and we were really tired. Saw the add in the green book for the Sleep Inn and thought we would give it at try. In the ad it said they had a high rating from Trip Advisor. The desk person was just bringing out fresh hot cookies for the evening snack when I walked in. Set me up with a great room and a king bed. The room was large and spacious, clean, nice layout in the bathroom, the refrigerator was clean and cold, the wifi connected right up. The next morning the Hot breakfast had scrambled eggs, sausage, ham, biscuits with sausage gravy, and waffkes, plus other items. The breakfast area was well maintained and the breakfast attended came around to make sure everything was right. Great Stay!!

Room Tip: We were on the second floor and it was nice and quiet.

Our son is a student at UF, and we have stayed at a different hotel each time we have visited him. Our Gainesville hotel search is over. The room was clean and in great shape. The front desk and staff were very courteous and helpful. The breakfast was very good. We'll be going back.

this past weekend I stayed here and they had a very nice staff. The guy working the breakfast area was one of the best hotel staff I have ever seen. Very polite and working hard. Also got to enjoy the complimentary shuttle to the Gators football game. Great time!
